Change the video section?

Change the video section?

  1. 1. Would you like the videos section changed to a tab page?



Recommended Posts

I am thinking of changing the video section from a forum based topic style as is currently, to a system which which be a dedicated page, accessed via a tab on the forum menu.

This would be set to allow members to add videos to the database, and probably just premium members which should stop any potential junk/spam from being posted. I was thinking 3 categories, Gold, Silver, and a General Precious Metals category, with ultimately maybe a Trading the markets section.

A tag system could also be implemented so videos could be tagged as "full stack video" "unboxing" etc, so it could be easier to browse specific themes of video.

I personally think it would make videos easier and nicer to browse, as at a glance could see multiple videos and their thumbnails, which out having to first click a topic title and then see.

Please let me know your thoughts on this below and if you would like me to introduce this to replace the current in topic forums type of video section we have now. Please vote on the poll, yes, if you would like this change.

Not to sure Chris just one more reason for another forum to pop up, if you take more off the members they will not visit as much.  I like watching YouTube vlogs. 

IMO I don't think the community is big enough for 2 UK forums going at it, it will end badly.  Also there are Premium members who are only premium members because they sell, they need there vlogs to be seen by as many veiwers as possible to generate interest.  It maybe ok at this moment, if the metals go higher I will bet there will be a new forum if the metals go lower a lot of members will disappear like last time and you will be left with the core long term collector/ investor/ stacker.

Sorry about the late reply. Sorry maybe my initial post was unclear, I wasn't thinking of making a new video section only visible to premium members, it is a section for all to view videos, it would become a category of videos that all members can browse. I was only thinking of limiting the submission of videos in this section to premium members in order to avoid lots of spam videos from being posted their by new members.

A new videos section is an idea that I may visit back on in the near or distant future, but likely will keep the current system as it is using the forums.

I understand now,  i see where you are coming from.  If you are having to delete lots of videos because of idiots posting non relating topics then that maybe a way to go, if a long standing  normal member wanted to post videos then maybe they could ask for permission from yourself as to encourage youtube vlogers etc.
